about

In the bitter aftertaste of my coffee routine
I also taste you, all your bitter flavors
Realized how much more we could’ve been
If I didn’t ask for too many favors

When I hear Led Zeppelin on vinyl for the first time
I also hear you screaming, “Been dazed and confused”
Was too obsessed trying to make you mine
The words “true love” became “ugly” and “abused”

When I smell gasoline through the open car window
I also smell you, your strong yet fragile state
Luring me in, my weakness began to show
Like a lone, wild beast searching for a mate

When I see suffering portrayed in Renaissance art
I also see you, just as sublime and deep
The fine lines in our folds keep us apart
While our lies and bad choices make us meet

But when I touch the edges of my face, cold and rough
I cannot touch you or feel you, only myself
Kept stealing more of you, still it wasn’t enough
So now I’ll stay lost, in sickness and in health
